Serena's Student Visionaries of the Year Fundraiser

Nov 18, 2023

Visionaries look to the future—and see infinite possibility.
They challenge the status quo—and make the impossible possible.
They boldly imagine a better world – and lead the charge to create it.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was built on that same vision - of a better world - one without blood cancers.


I am a visionary; I have a vision for a world without cancer, but I need your help.


This year, I’m proud to be a part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Visionaries of the Year Campaign, working to raise as much as possible for LLS’s mission.

As a global leader in the fight against blood cancer, LLS:

  • Funds cutting-edge research leading to breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine that are improving and saving the lives of patients
  • Provides free education and support for blood cancer patients and families, including personalized, one-on-one support, assistance with identifying and enrolling in clinical trials, and more.
  • Mobilizes thousands of advocates to drive policy changes that accelerate the development of new cancer treatments and break down barriers to care.

Please consider joining this fight by making a donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. Please visit my website often and tell friends who would also like to donate!


Thanks to your support, my efforts will help ensure this generation is the last to see cancer.

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you!

About me:

  • Ever since I was young, medicine has been a passion for me. I spent my time studying the body, and discovering new information. By the time I was 6, I knew how to wrap a cast and check someone’s vitals. Last year, when I had the opportunity to be a Student Visionary for 2023, I made sure that I was a part of it. Helping family and helping patients is my passion. LLS is an organization that helps families fund for the care they need to help kick cancer's butt. I believe that everybody should be given the opportunity to have proper medical care. When I learned that I could help fund a child’s medical bill just by bringing the community together, I made sure that I did because being able to pursue my passion and unite people to help those in need, is really a blessing.
